Community Interest

One of the DPA’s key objectives is the representation of the local community in matters of interest. This has included such topical issues as the rezoning of the buildings along the foreshore at the end of Dunn Bay Rd. and the creation of new local parks.

We are also proactive in making our local area as great as it can be. This includes honouring outstanding members of the community with Naturaliste Gratitude Awards at the annual Australia Day ceremony on the Dunsborough foreshore, and the recently installed Aboriginal flagpole installed next to the existing Australian flagpole, at the foreshore.

If there are local community matters of interest that you would like to discuss with the DPA, please contact us.

We will usually invite you to our next meeting to provide a short presentation, following which the committee discusses the matter and decides on an appropriate course of action.
